Critical Thinking in the Art Room!

"10 Lessons the Arts Teach" by Elliott Eisner

Some thoughts about the arts....

"The creation of art requires the use of judgement, perceptivity, ingenuity, and purpose--in a word, intelligence."

Elliot Eisner

"Art is humanity's most essential, most universal language. It is not a frill, but a necessary part of communication. The quality of civilization can be measured through music, dance, drama, architecture, visual arts, and literature. We must give our children knowledge and understanding of civilization's most profound work."

Ernest L. Boyer

"Arts education enhances our nation's economic competitiveness by developing in students creative problem-solving skills, imagination, self-discipline, and attention to detail."

Richard W. Riley, Secretary of the US Department of Education
